RE: [RC] [RC] New Truck (Nina) - Karen Standefer

Hi, Nina.  I know you didn't ask for advice on the
GMC/Chevy model of trucks, but I have to relate my
experience anyway.  I have a 2002 GMC, diesel, 1 ton
dually, 4x4.  I pull a 32' 8' wide Sundowner that is
just under 10k lbs unloaded.  I am thrilled with the
performance of my truck.  I believe it is the only one
ton truck that comes factory equipped with an exhaust
brake.  I travel in and across the Cascades whenever I
haul, so that was an important feature.  My friend,
who has a Ford and the same trailer I pull, added a
Jake brake.  The dealer voided her warranty on her
transmission (which has blown 3 times before the truck
had 30k miles) eventhough she had the Jake brake
installed at a Ford Dealership.  

I also like the hauling capacity.  The GMC/Chevy has
more hauling/stopping capacity than the other 1 ton
trucks (at 26,400 GCVW).  It also comes factory
equipped with a transmission cooling system and
transmission heat gague which are things I would have
added to either the Dodge or Ford.


I'm going to purchase a new truck... 1Ton Dually 4
door Diesel Dodge/Ford?.  Any advice/suggestions and
or comments/recommendations would be greatly
appreciated!  I live in So CA  (Thousand Oaks) area. 
Please email me privately caballos@xxxxxxx  Thank you.
